Thanksgiving was my last entry? Let me rectify that with two quotes from reading the Internets today. First, from Rogier van Bakel on free speech.
Denying others the rights and protections you demand for yourself is the zenith of arrogance.
That’s an excellent, condensed way of stating it. You already know another discussion where I apply that sentiment, in various ways.
Next, from David Henderson writing on a 1999 quote by Ben Bernanke on government response to economic crisis:
You don’t get output to be higher by making it lower.
The desire to Do Something is strong, particularly among politicians. Unless the crisis is “the house is on fire” urgent, everyone should suppress this desire vigorously until after arriving at a considered plan. Unlike what Congress, the President, and the President-elect are doing.
